Ford Bridge, Brora

This postcard from the early 20th century shows the footbridge which crosses the Ford Pool on the Lower River Brora.

The River Brora rises in the hills of east Sutherland and flows 26 miles to the village of Brora on the east coast of Sutherland. With a catchment area of 165 miles the two main tributaries of the Lower Brora, the Upper Brora and the Blackwater, meet near Balnacoil before flowing in to Loch Brora. Below the loch, the Lower Brora, considered one of the best salmon rivers in Sutherland, runs a four mile course to the sea.

The footbridge came down in a recent storm and has been replaced by a new one.
